From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown…and how nothing can ever train you to let go. What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic adventure spanning their lives. Welcome to the most astonishing chapter of one of the most beloved animated franchises in film history: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together—to the very ends of the Earth—to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.

Set to be one of the year's most inspiring and entertaining films, this is the powerful and timely true story of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who led the fight against gender discrimination and blazed an unprecedented trail for equality. From being one of only a few women accepted at Harvard Law to co-founding the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU, Bader Ginsburg overcame all odds to become one of the most influential figures in the battle for equal rights, passionately arguing ground-breaking landmark cases and giving a voice to those unable to be heard. Lighting up the screen with fantastic performances, Felicity Jones stars as Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Armie Hammer as her husband Marty, a talented lawyer in his own right who offers unwavering support to his wife. Directed by Mimi Leder and written by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s nephew, Daniel Stiepleman, On the Basis of Sex also stars Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates and Cailee Spaeny.
